Composer, violinist and Vietnam veteran Billy Bang and his New York-based quintet present the world premiere of new selections from his ongoing Vietnam Trilogy, an intensly direct and heart-rending portrayal of war from the perspective of a soldier on the ground. Hailing from Mobile, Alabama, with a musical lineage based in an appreciation of John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, and Jackie McLean, Bang (a.k.a. William Vincent Walker) was a member of the String Trio of New York with James Emery and John Lindberg, and has played with pianist Marilyn Crispell, the Sun Ra Orchestra, and guitarist Sonny Sharrock, among others. Vietnam: The Aftermath was released on Justin Time Records in 2002; the second release in the trilogy, Vietnam Reflections, will be out sometime in 2005.
